Milking 130 cows on two Lely robots in Co Kildare

Peter Anderson from Co Kildare converted to dairying in spring 2019, installing a Lely A5 to milk his​ 64 heifers on a grass-based system. In spring 2020 he installed his second Lely A5 and increased numbers to 100 cows with an average production of 490kg of milk solids. For 2021 he aims to milk 130 cows on the system. Peter will outline how the system has worked for the farm to date and how the information he gets from his robots helps him to make daily management decisions.
